MUST-SEE: Wisconsin Defeats Xavier With Incredible Buzzer-Beater
— NCAA March Madness (@marchmadness) March 21, 2016
Last night's Wisconsin vs. Xavier NCAA Tournament match-up delivered an instant-classic March Madness moment.
With the game tied at 63-63, Wisconsin junior Bronson Koenig buried a 3-pointer as time expired for a dramatic 66-63 victory.
A review by officials upheld the score, sending the Badgers on to the Sweet 16, where they will face sixth-seeded Notre Dame Friday in Philadelphia.
Wisconsin was down as much as nine points in the final seven minutes of the game, but a series of Musketeers mistakes allowed the Badgers back into the game.
